Lots of talk these days about “digital” vacations. The term represents two concepts:
Taking a vacation and being disconnected from the digital tools we use at the office.
Taking a break from social media.
I recently had the chance to talk about digital vacations with Joyce Maroney and William Tincup on a Workforce Institute at Kronos podcast. You can check it out here. We each have very different views on balancing technology in our professional and personal lives but we did agree on a couple of things.
Finding time to disconnect is important.
Disconnect the way that works best for you.
That’s what crossed my mind when I saw this infographic from Column Five Media and PGi on working vacations – now termed “workations”. The term doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue but I think we can all relate to the data.
